EDITED: Official retail price is set to be 3300 Yen (tax included), and it is due to release in late April. Height is expected to be around 14cm.
As far as I know, the D-Arts is quite a new line for Bandai Tamashii Nation's action figure lines, and it's some sort of a branch off SH Figuarts. So far only WarGreymon has been released and Omegamon is due to release in February 2011, and both are from Digimon. More characters from different series will eventually be introduced to this line eventually.
Will we get to see the game series' popular deuteragonist, Zero? Fear not, he's already been planned under this line as mentioned on the developer's comment:
Even though I haven't played that many Mega Man games, I will look forward to see his appearance since it's been long due ^^ And I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking that too when X has been announced. The Mega Man series have been a strong one for Capcom, and it has rooted itself well in many people's childhood memories. ^^
As for other power-up armours that X used in different games as well as other effects or enemies, we will have to wait until further annoucements are made.
